Traveling – Osage Beach, Missouri, To Richmond, Indiana

Tuesday, November 19

We left the hotel in Missouri about 7:45 a.m. – after saying goodbye to some of our new friends.

DSC_0765Our first stop was at the slaughter-house where the deer were taken after they were brought in from the field.

Cerwin asked them to just remove the meat from the bones. We have a local butcher who will process the venison for us.

I did not take many pictures while we traveled as I was captivated by Howard G Buffett’s book, Forty Chances. Howard’s experiences of finding his purpose in life and traveling around the world to feed the hungry are so interesting.
